Announcing IBM Bluemix Local System

IBM has announced IBM Bluemix Local System that allows a company to run an appliance on their premises to cloud enable enterprise apps
Hybrid Cloud with IBM Bluemix

We created a new appliance that allows customers to run cloud-enabled enterprise apps alongside cloud-native apps, all in a single, fully-integrated, on-premises environment that provides the business agility, control and security they need to stay ahead of their competition.

The Bluemix Local System comes fully integrated with IBM PureApplication Software and IBM Bluemix Local, delivering a local private cloud that simplifies, automates and optimizes deployment of application environments, allowing developers to simply focus on building exciting new apps.

This is a piece of a much larger puzzle of making more apps and environments of brining IBM's cloud platform into your own data center.  Of course there are some costs here around PureApplication systems to consider. You can see more in an IBM video here and an upcoming August 10th  webcast. (registration)
